Testing Existing R-Value

Does your existing insulation meet current standards? More Importantly does if function as intended? Performance is measured in R-Value. R-Value is a scale of heat retention. Often Insulation is improperly installed, leaving gaps and cracks for air to travel through. Lastly, air quality is an important test.

Does Your Attic Meet Current Standards ?

R-value tells us how well insulation can resist heat flow

R= Resistance to heat escape.

• Attics is R-49/60
• Sidewalls R-21
• Cantilevered Floors R-38
• Transition Walls R-21
• Basement Walls R-13
• Crawlspace Walls R-21

Illinois current standards are moving closer to a 4.0 Air Exchange Rate and R-values consistent with optimal standards.

Cost difference vs r-value difference

What is the difference in cost of different insulation materials to achieve same R-Value?

 Fiberglass R-Value 2.9-4.2 per inch
 Mineral Wool R-Value 3.0-3.2 per inch\
 Urea formaldehyde foam insulation 5.0per inch
 Plastic Board R-Value 3.7-6.0 per inch
 Sprayed foam R-Value 3.0-7.0 per inch
 Vermiculite R-Value 2.1- 2.5 per inch

Illinois current standards for construction. Choosing the right materials.

From mineral wool to radiant barriers, spray foam insulation, fiberglass insulation, foam board insulation, blown in cellulose insulation or some other less common form such as sheep’s wool, denim or others, each is measured in terms of its R-Value. In Chicago, current standards are measured in R-Value ( the resistance to heat escape ) measured on a scale from 0-70 for all intended purposes of this example.

Sidewalls R21
Cantilevered Floors R38
Transition Walls R21
Basement Walls R13
